This was the scene from the Denver airport as I waited to catch a flight to Tucson. It was not snowing when I arrived. The last time I came through the Mile High City, there was a blizzard that caused me to stay at a hotel overnight. This was not so bad: only a 3 hour delay -- two of them spent sitting on the tarmac waiting till the de-icing operations opened up. We had to go outside and walk to the plane, then walk up such a slippery ramp that one woman on our flight slipped, fell,and hit her head.
It was great to finally get to Tucson, where the night temps were in the 70's. Happily, I am staying with Janet and Dave Windsor, who are absolutely delightful people. Lucky me! Tomorrow is a gap day.
Spent most of the weekend packing, but took time off to go to the opening of a wonderful exhibit of art chairs on Sunday afternoon. This was a fundraiser for the WAE Center, which is a place where developmentally disabled artists can take classes, create, and work in a variety of mediums. My friend Yvette directs the art program and commissioned a number of artists to conceive a chair project as art and have the students participating in creating the chairs. Here are just a few of them.
The student artists painted these Ikea chairs, whch can remain a sculpture or be taken apart and used.
My friend Susanna directed this project and it was the first art to sell!
